High Tension

There are two kinds of people in this world: people who coast through life and people who grab life by the balls, spit in its face and scream ‘SHOW ME THE PARTY!’. HIGH TENSION are the latter.

HIGH TENSION consists of Karina Utomo and Ash Pegram (Young and Restless), Matt Weston (The Nation Blue) and Damian Cowards (Heirs, Love Like Electrocution) and are set to release their highly anticipated ripper 2nd album, BULLY on July 10 via Double Cross Records powered through Cooking Vinyl Australia.

Bully, the perfect soundtrack to flying down the highway, tinnies in the back and no room for fucks to give. Recorded in Adelaide with James Balderston, guest spots include Matt Young from King Parrot and grunge heroine Adalita.

Bully is the follow up to 2012’s Death Beat, which landed them nominations for Best Hard Rock Album at both the ARIA and AIR awards.

Get slammed up against the locker and have your lunch thrown in your face by BULLY. It’s harassment of the best kind.
